  • Signature: YOUR BOATS READY AND WHAT IS YOUR POSITION"
  • Provenance: Marconi Archive, London; Christies, New York, 17 February 1998; Private collection, England.
  • One of a series of telegrams sent back to London by the Titanic and Olympic on the night the great liner went to the depths. A stark and chilling memento of a great tragedy which occurred to this Belfast built ship on her maiden crossing from Queenstown, Co. Cork to New York. Unique. This message is relayed via London from the Titanic to its sister ship the Olympic. Captain Smith on the Titanic was asking Olympic to get its boats ready and requesting his position. In fact the Olympic was over 400 miles away and by the time it arrived at the scene it was too late. The Titanic began embarking the ship’s passengers in lifeboats twenty minutes after this telegram was sent, and the ship went to the depths almost exactly three hours later at 2.20am New York Time. Over 1,500 people drowned in the icy waters, many of them poor emigrants in the third class section, a lot of whom were Irish.
